We’ve seen Zoya’s Paradise Sun collection but now let’s take a look at their Island Fun collection. Full of luscious creams, I couldn’t wait to dive into these babies because at first glance, they really do remind me of summer.
Ring in the summer season with gooooorgeous summery nail polish shades. YES baby! Mama is ready. I received a press sample of Zoya’s Paradise Sun collection and at first glance, these polishes are remarkable. I mean, what’s not to love?
They’re bright and they shimmer. That’s all that matters, right?
The other day I played in nail polish. Y’all have no idea how long it has been since I had some fun and no pressure play time in my nail polish stash. It doesn’t happen often. In fact, it happened WAY more pre-kid. Now instead of playing in polishes, I’m too busy cleaning a kitchen, attempting to spend time with Esposo or just diving into my newest hobby, reading. But whatever. Sometimes you gotta take it back and play, man.
And play, I did! These are all random polishes that I just grabbed from my stash. They are mostly from the Fall 2014 season and sent to me by the brands. Here’s to hoping there are still available should you fall in love with any of them!
The most important thing about this collection is that Zoya is finally giving us a nail polish named Brittany!!!! Yes y’all! I’m pretty sure it wasn’t named after me, but I’m excited about it. Not Britney. Not Britnee. Just plain on Brittany. Yeah, I’m a bit of a name snob. Check let’s good at this collection…
I received this for review and this collection is a nice in-between Winter and Spring collection. This hybrid formula is a cross between a gloss and matte and I LOVE how you can reach full opacity with a good 2 coats.
I feel like it has been forever since I’ve attending a fun Twitter party. This Zoya party is just what I needed!

You will excuse me for just now getting this post up, won’t you? Back when I reviewed Zoya’s Tickled collection, I had a mission to get this press sample of Bubbly up soon after and yeah well…life. You know how it goes, right? *cue the violins* I think you’ll forgive me once you see the sweetness that is this collection…
And you’ll have to forgive me for going font crazy because I am learning my way around PhotoShop and I basically want to do fun ‘tings to ALL THE PICTURES. How sad is it that I’ve been blogging for over 7 freaking years and I am just now playing in Photoshop? Sad stuff, girls. Saaad stuff.
But file this collection under things that make me happy. If you are a fan of a holographic jelly fizzy polish, this collection may be up your alley. They do really well when worn alone but I’ve found that they really shine when layered on top of a creme polish.
It’s an interesting formula that Zoya is giving us and I think it is more than fitting for summer.
Harper is a cotton candy pink with cold shimmer and when worn alone, I think she looks okay. I can’t wait to see how this baby acts aboard a baby pink.
Staasi is a citron green with all kinds of emerald loveliness. I am also amazed at how well this one does on its own.
Alma is a warm golden peach that I think will look beautiful on the nails of women of all complexions.
Muse is a blue raspberry with a touch of gold. And the best thing about this baby? She doesn’t give you Smurf fingers! It’s a sweet blue that I can’t wait to try over a navy blue. Giiiirl, how hot would that be?
Jesy is a firey coral orange and I usually have my issue with corals but this is just sweet and divine.
Binx is a spicy orchid purple and this shade is my favorite of the bunch. I find that it is the one shade that really does spectacular on its own.
Not a bad bunch, huh? Overall, I think it’s a fantastic collection and I can appreciate how Zoya always keeps us on our toes. We never know what they are going to do when it comes to nail polish formulas and colors. And trust me when I say it is hard to surprise nail polish aficionados. We think we’ve seen it all but Zoya continues to push the envelope and I’m so glad that they do. I find the formula on these to be superb and I didn’t have any application issues with them. I applied 2 coats for each polish but I’m thinking you can get away with applying 3 without any problems. And of course they will all look smashing when layered over your favorite creme nail polish. Yassss Zoya. Yasss!
You can get this collection at Zoya.com for $9 a bottle or $54 for the entire collection.
So what do you think? A fan of this formula or not so much?
Sweet and creamy and made for Summer, Zoya’s Tickled collection was sent to me with the Bubbly collection. These shades are all bright and will absolutely satisfy the color fanatics of the world.
See what I’m talkin’ about?
Rocha is a red cream with warm undertones. It has a good amount of orange in it and while it isn’t wildly unique, it’s a fun mix between red and orange.
Rooney is a magenta pink cream but really I find it to be notch up from baby pink. I’ve never been a fan of pink nail polishes and I really want to hate this one but it is kinda growing on me. I’ve got to find a pretty top coat to layer over it.
Tilda is a fantastic warm mantis green that looks more like a Granny Smith apple cream. Really, it is far more warmer and has a touch of white in it. It’s a great green and not one that I think Zoya has in their green lineup.
Oh Wendy. I’m thinking this juicy summer melon will be a hot pick among many summer pedicure pickers. It’s a pretty average shade and is like a mature bubblegum but I’m sure this girl will look great on the toes.
Ling is a beautiful vibrant royal blue. I’m a lover of blues and this is perfect and fitting for those who want to take baby steps into wearing blues.
Kitridge is the only polish that I had to apply 3 coats of. If Wendy is a mature bubblegum pink, Kitridge is the teenage bubblegum pink.
And then altogether in harmony.
I’m a fan of this collection but really it’s Kitridge and Tilda that rock my socks. Formula, as always, was perfect and it seems like with every collection they release, Zoya just gets better and better on the formula front. Are any of these shades are callin’ ya? You can get the entire collection at Zoya.com for $54 for all 6 polishes for $9 a bottle.
My girl Leandra from Nail Polish Therapy is still helping me in the swatching department of the press samples of polishes that I received many moons ago. Today we’re showcasing the ever so simple yet stunning Naturel collection from Zoya.
This collection hit the scenes in December of 2013 and uh…let’s not talk about how late I am in getting this review up, okay? Naturel is still making waves in the nail polish community. Because hello…creams never get old. Never.
Normani is a sable mauve cream that I found to almost look like OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques. While not as dirty mop water’ish, Normani is the kind of shade that you would maaaaaybe try. Or you’d run away from it. That’s it.
You won’t find me saying anything bad about a collection full of creams. I think Zoya did an amazing job in terms of uniqueness and stellar formula. Chantal and Normani may very well be the must haves of this collection. You can snag each bottle for $8/bottle or the entire collection for $54 at Zoya.com.
